Errands + Lunch at Yamamori!

yamamori

Had a mini celebration lunch at Yamamori along the Quays..

There’s a lot of things going on in our household over the past weeks. I don’t want to divulge anything at the moment until everything’s settled, though. But let’s just say that things are progressing quite nicely.

Dongdaemun Stroll!

dongdaemun

Why did we miss to go around Dongdaemun area when we visited last April?!

Let’s say that I am having some Seoul withdrawal symptoms recently. For the past weeks, I have been reminiscing on our experiences in Seoul. And, wish that it is far easier to go back than it is now!

Review: The Marker Hotel Brasserie

The Marker Hotel Brasserie has been a favorite for a long time – and I’ll share why

The Marker Hotel Brasserie is one of our favorite dining places in Dublin. The location is superb (especially if it’s a warm day) not to mention the prices is not that expensive – if I compare it to other dining places we go to around Dublin city center.

Father’s Day Lunch at Chez Max

chez max

My husband chose Chez Max at Palace St to celebrate Father’s Day last June..

It’s been a while since we dined at Chez Max at Palace St. And for a long time, I really, really thought it was Baggot St. LOL! Well, that only proves one thing – my sense of direction is terrible!!!!

Review: Siam Thai Restaurant

siam dundrum

Been a while since I had Thai food! So we decided to go visit Siam – a Thai restaurant in Dundrum shopping center

Dundrum shopping center is one of our go-to places when we want to have a “different day” on a weekend. Because it is quite far from where we live, we often stay there for the entire day. We usually go there early in the morning. And then, let our son play in a play cafe inside the shopping center, have lunch, and just roam around the mall while my son takes his nap.

Review: Create Your Own Perfume Workshop (Airbnb Experiences)

airbnb experiences

On our trip to Seoul, we booked a workshop thru Airbnb Eperiences

On our trip to Seoul, I had a friend who came on the same weeks we were there. She was the same friend who visited us last year from Singapore – so I was thrilled we can meet even for just a day while we were there! We had our separate itineraries on most days but planned to do this activity (including my Mom) so we can have a bonding moment together!

Best Korean Foods to Try in Seoul

korean foods

I miss Seoul! And, definitely miss these top Korean foods..

I am definitely feeling the “Seoul hangover” vibe. If only it is easy to book the next plane ticket available to go to Seoul – I’d do that in a heartbeat. And, to be honest, I’d go anywhere to take a mini break these days, too!
Shopping aside, Korean food is one of the things I enjoyed while we were in Seoul. Kimchi is a normal side dish I often stuff my face with, which I have grown to love a lot more during the trip! So, just imagine I have probably tried all sorts of variants (and shapes!) of this famous Korean side-dish.

Bank Holiday Ireland: Howth weekend!

We went to Howth during one of Ireland’s Bank Holiday long weekends..

Bank Holiday weekends are here again in Ireland. I think we are down to a couple more before the “holiday draught”. It is actually good to have these short breaks from work, especially if the weather is fantastic, too!

Pride + Weekend Errands

gay pride

The pride parade was on that weekend but I had to go to the city center for some errands..

A couple of weekends ago was gay pride in Dublin. A lot of people consider this a big achievement in Ireland, especially after the State legalized same-sex marriage. It could’ve been because of the country’s Catholic roots. Or, the fact there are still a lot of countries out there where individuals belonging to the LGBTQ community are still fighting for their rights. So for Ireland to officially recognize this right and grant to them – is such a huge milestone for the group!
